Germany

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe’s leading universities in research and teaching. As the Entrepreneurial University, it doesn’t just want to understand the world – it wants to improve it. That is why the entire university revolves around one core goal: innovation.

Interdisciplinary solutions to future challenges

TUM’s unparalleled range of disciplines covers engineering and natural sciences, life sciences and medicine, management and social sciences – a combination found nowhere else in Europe. TUM leverages this enormous potential by intensively and intelligently combining the different subjects. This inspires modern fields of research extending from bioengineering to machine intelligence. At the same time, TUM links technological change more closely with social, political and ethical issues than other technical university.

Awakening the entrepreneurial spirit

No other German university produces more start-up founders – the result of a support infrastructure unrivalled in Europe. TUM also builds long-term research partnerships with the most innovative global players. More and more companies are establishing roots directly on campus.

A global university

TUM is an international university with a high proportion of foreign students and researchers as well as more than 150 partner universities around the globe. With the founding of TUM Asia in 2012 in Singapore, it became the first German university to establish an overseas campus. TUM also has offices in Brussels, Cairo, Mumbai, Beijing, San Francisco, and São Paulo.

Combo drug strategy for cancer

Targeting a critical signalling protein called SHP2 may augment the anti-tumour effects of a promising class of approved drugs known as MEK inhibitors.

A team led by Technical University of Munich researchers studied mouse models of lung and pancreatic cancer driven by altered forms of KRAS, a gene found mutated in many patients with these tumour types.

When the researchers blocked the activity of SHP2, either by genetic or pharmacological means, they saw delays in cancer progression.

SHP2 inhibition helped reduce levels of the mutant KRAS protein, but the treatment alone was insufficient to induce tumour regression. Only by adding an additional MEK-targeted drug could the researchers achieve tumour shrinkage in the mouse models. The synergistic drug combination also cut the risk of tumours developing resistance to the MEK inhibitor.

The findings highlight a compelling dual-drug strategy that merits further testing in clinical trials.
